Try installing HP MediaSmart DVD Software 3.0 Rev. C from this url:
More information about the file is here: ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp45001-45500/sp45170.html
Let us know if it works.

I am running into the same problem. I have a DV7-1183cl and I cannot play blueray discs with Windows 7. I tried installing HP MediaSmart DVD Software 3.0 and now my BDROM will recognize the disc but it will not play it.
I get a message saying "Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file."
Please advise, thank you.
